Down Memory Lane - Wayne Goss
– by Stan Shillington
Ollie wasn’t a giant in stature. At a relatively short five-foot-nine and hovering around 155 pounds, he would never have been mistaken for The Dominator. But outside appearances can be, and are, deceiving – a small body hiding a huge heart, a happy smile masking fierce competitiveness, friendly eyes camouflaging an unbending determination to succeed.
The Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame was chartered in 1965.
Early in 1963, a group of lacrosse enthusiasts in New Westminster decided that, because of the Royal City’s historical background in the National Sport, New Westminster would be an appropriate location for the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. With the blessing of the City Council, the interested parties applied to the Canadian Lacrosse Association for a charter.
